Managers and Finance Staff

Companies tend to reward project managers early in their careers but, as the years pass, internal consultants see their salaries jump. The pay for an accounting manager levels off after year 7, while controllers see their pay increase in steps. As a group, financial analysts are among those most likely to seek other positions. No wonder: Their salaries barely budge after five years on the job.
